For Fibonacci-watchers, S&P futures ticked 38.2% retracement and stalled and VWAP was support all day. Credit markets did not buy it and stocks caught down to them.
Silver, having underperformed since the taper, outperformed today back
over $19.50 and +1.7% on the week as gold slipped modestly today (but
+0.8% on the week). Treasuries sold off modestly leaving yields -2-3bps
on the week. AUD stength and JPY weakness supported stocks but the USD flatlined ahead of tomorrow's ECB meeting.
MUB, the Muni ETF, was smashed lower on the Puero Rico junking (and
that triggered a quick waterfall in stocks) but that was quickli BTFD'd. VIX fell an impressive 2.9 vols to 18.5%, which is notable since stocks 'underperformed' the hedge cover by a long way.
The S&P 500 remains below its 100DMA, The Dow closed below its 200DMA once again; and Trannies bounced off the 100DMA
